A New Milestone in Magic Bibliography
Bibliographie Des Deutschsprachigen Schrifttums Zur Zauberkunst Publikationen Bis 1945
Bibliography Of German-Language Literature on Magic Arts Published before 1945
Volker Huber & Christian Theiẞ
Books like this only appear once a generation, and that is if we are fortunate. Volker Huber, one of the world’s great magic collectors and historians, has spent nearly his entire collecting life researching and collecting German language books. His collection of German books is certainly the best in the world and the best that has ever been collected. Mr.Huber has used his incomparable collection as his prime resource for this bibliography to create a reference work that only he could have made.
After more than 30 years of work, Mr. Huber has listed and described each conjuring book that he is aware of in the German language. Fortunately, he owns almost all of them so the descriptions and collations are second to none and will be a huge advantage to all collectors following in his footsteps.
The book is 675 over-sized pages finely printed in Germany with a section of color illustrations highlighting a number of notable books.
All magic book collectors owe Mr. Huber a great debt of gratitude for working the countless hours needed to create such an important resource. This monumental work will be the reference standard for generations to come and perhaps will never be superseded.
